Interpersonal Perception

A Social Relations Analysis

David A. Kenny's pioneering contribution takes a social relations approach to basic questions of person perception in social interaction. Enlightening and provocative, this volume provides a comprehensive theoretical overview of "interpersonal perception," a field of research that holds great promise for shedding light on social behavior. Blending meticulous analysis with thoughtful interpretation, the book demonstrates how interpersonal perception enhances the traditional study of person perception by capturing the richness of social behavior.This unique volume is invaluable reading for all social scientists interested in person perception.
David A. Kenny, Ph.D., is a Professor of Psychology at the University of Connecticut, Storrs. He has been a Visiting Professor at Arizona State University and the University of Oxford. He has also served as a Fellow at the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences in Stanford, California.
..".an ambitious work that presents a comprehensive review and analysis of existing work to date using the social relations model (SRM). SRM is one of the most innovative and useful accomplishments in the area of social perception since Kelley's (1967) cube....Although the methodological and statistical underpinnings of SRM are quite complex, Kenny does a masterful job of explaining the basic ideas in a simple and straightforward manner in the first two chapters....SRM is clearly one of the most innovative, creative, and powerful tools yet developed for gaining insights into how people view themselves and others. "Interpersonal Perception" provides a clear, readable, and comprehensive account of existing social perception research using that model." --Lee Jussim in "Psychological Inquiry" "The result of Kenny's admirable willingness to draw conclusions is a punchier contribution than psychologists usually offer to social understanding. There is a real feeling, when one has finished reading this book, that psychology has learned a thing or two about how people perceive one another, and that is the kind of feeling that is good for our field. Some of Kenny's most important assertions address the way we should frame questions about interpersonal perception....Kenny has further established himself, if that is possible, as the key person in the study of interpersonal perception. His book is a must-read and a must-have for anybody doing research in this area and would also make a superb graduate-level textbook....The research it inspires will, in the end, be this book's most important contribution." --David C. Funder in "Psychological Inquiry" "Kenny's book is testimony to the excitement and vibrancy that once again pervade research on how people perceive themselves and others. "Interpersonal Perception" is a milestone in the field, and we believe it will have a lasting impact....One of the most impressive achievements of "Interpersonal Perception" is that it
